Sweet Ganja - Bluntskinz - thebluntskins.bandcamp.com

Northern lights from Manchester, nice mix of reggae and thunkingly heavy old-skool beats, rampagingly spot-on lyrics lending weight to what we've always known. We don't need to legalise it. In most of the country IT ALREADY IS MANDATORY.

Fly Away - D-Region & Code feat Adria Kain - Emotif

Despite the predictability of this track, from the lyrical content to the choice of pads and patterns, this little dancefloor number isn't too terrible. It serves its purpose well and unashamedly, and although not generally to the taste of the more seasonal club attendee, it should satisfy the palate of the fresher meat. 

Road Sines - TR20 - KYUBU

A brand new record label, KYUBU kicks off with this smart blend of tribal electro-tech that definitely qualifies for the 'eclectro' tag. Joshua Tobin and Jack Rutherford make up the duo and this is their own label, which aims to feature output from like minds alongside their own material. Barry Jamieson has touched up track by everyone from Sasha to Madonna, New Order and Depeche Mode and his stripped back more traditional dark housey version is a perfect flipside.

Together Like This - Zoo Look - Abstract Culture

Abstract Culture so far has a 100% record. OK, so they've only one release, but they've really smashed it out of the park. Bournemouth's Zoo Look are blessed with populating this inaugural EP, 'Together Like This', a swing-laden groove flecked with acid. The art of the warm-up DJ is often lost these days, but this is the kind of track to be dropped when the gear needs to shift up. The 'Purple Velvet Mix' humps too. 'The Duchess' is a brilliantly fucked up breakbeat houser, the likes of which we don't see enough. Bravo.
